Stir Fry Veggies with Udon Noodles

A Few Words…

I love cooking with udon noodles! They are so easy to add to stir fry dishes.

My family loves stir frys – me too! It’s so easy to make because you don’t have to follow an exact recipe and the ingredients are interchangeable. Sometimes I run out of broccoli or bok choy, so I’ll just use more onions and bell peppers. And not everyone in my family likes the same vegetables so depending on who’s home for dinner, is what I use!

Work with what you’ve got and adjust the spices and vegetable quantity depending on how many people you are making this for. I always make extra because it’s delish the next day!

I like adding cooked chicken, beef or fish to my stir fry and sometimes I just keep it as a side dish! So many possibilities and choices!

Serves 4-6

Ingredients:

  • 1 head broccoli
  • 1 large Vidalia or red onion, cut in slices
  • 3-4 bell peppers, different colours cut into chunks or strips
  • 1 pint of mushrooms, coarsely sliced
  • 4-5 packages of udon noodles (see Note at bottom)

Other Ingredients:

  • Olive oil
  • Garlic powder
  • Dried oregano
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • Chili flakes
  • Tamari, low sodium
  • Sriracha

Other Veggie Ideas:

  • Zucchini
  • Leeks
  • Shallots
  • Bok Choy
  • Swiss Chard
  • Carrots, sliced on a diagonal
  • Celery

Directions:
Cut your vegetables and place in a large ziploc baggie. In a small bowl, mix together 1 tsp. garlic powder, 1 tsp. dried oregano, a pinch of salt and ground pepper and a pinch of chili flakes (or pepper). Pour the mixed spices into the baggie and add 1 tbs. of olive oil. Shake well and set aside. You can prepare this earlier in the day.

Put 1 tsp. olive oil in a sauté pan on medium heat. Add the marinated veggies and sauté for about 8-10 minutes until the veggies have softened and browned a bit. Set aside.

Place a wok pan on the burner and heat prior to adding 1-2 tsp. of olive oil. Swirl the olive oil in the pan and then add the udon noodles. Add a little salt, a pinch of garlic powder, 1-2 tbs. of tamari and a squirt of Sriracha into the noodles. I like using a spatula to stir fry the noodles until softened, about 5-6 minutes.

Add the cooked veggies to the noodle mixture, toss and enjoy!

Note:
*The Udon Noodles I use are President Choice brand sold in Provigo and each package contains 4 individual packages of 200g each
